Visit to Monasterio de El Escorial + Valle de los Caídos
Visit two monuments which are National Heritage and know the great history that these ones have created and lived throughout the years.
In this experience you will visit the Real Monasterio de El Escorial, an architectural ensemble which is a World Heritage. Its history will surprise you without doubt with the Basílica de El Valle de los Caídos, monument built with the aim of paying homage and burying to those who died by fighting in the Spanish Civil War.
The visit starts in El Escorial, monument that for years was considered as the eighth Wonder of the World. The visit includes El Palacio de los Austrias, el Panteón de Los Reyes e Infantes (Pantheon of the Kings and Infantes), la Sala Capitular (Chapter room) and the Basilica.
Just 9 km far away from El Escorial is located our next stop of our visit: la Basílica del Valle de los Caídos (the Basilica of Valley of the Fallen). This construction was excavated 1350 meters above sea level in a mountain. The symbol of this monument is an amazing cross which measures 150 meters high located in the wonderful natural spot of La Sierra de Guadarrama.
